Gluten-Free Vegan Sweet Potato Pancakes with Almond Flour


Yum. As I was stocking up the pantry in preparation for Thanksgiving, I noticed that I had two very full bags of sweet potatoes staring me in the face. What to do, what to do.

I decided to combine them with yummy, nutty almond flour for a Gluten-Free Friday pancake post! Almond flour is not only tasty, it adds a heavy serving of protein to your breakfast. Mixed with another gluten-free flour like brown rice flour (to ensure proper consistency), it’s an awesome option for gluten-free baking.

  • 1/4 cup almond flour, loosely packed

  • 1 small sweet potato, about 1/2 cup (roasted and mashed)

  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • cooking spray
  1. Mix almond flour, brown rice flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg together in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk to combine.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine mashed sweet potato, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, stirring with a whisk to combine.

I topped my pancakes with cinnamon coconut whipped cream.  If you are curious about making your own coconut whipped cream, stay tuned. I’ll be posting a video on this soon!
